Joint Master's Programme in Health Informatics

The programme is aimed at students who are interested in Information Technology and want to apply this to the medicine or healthcare fields. It is given jointly between Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm University and you will get a joint degree from both universities.

Health informatics deals with learning how to improve modern healthcare through efficient management of knowledge and health information. You will learn methods to make healthcare safer, more efficient and of higher quality through computer-based information and knowledge management.

Students with a technical background start by taking courses in basic medical science and healthcare organisation and management at Karolinska Institutet while students with a background in healthcare take courses in basic computer and systems sciences at Stockholm University. After this, both groups join to focus on health informatics. In the second year, students profile their education by taking elective courses and complete a degree project.... [-]

MSc in Medical Science, Public Health

Lund University
Campus Full time 2 years September 2019 Sweden Lund

This Master's programme’s focus is cross-disciplinary with a consistent global perspective and provides you with evidence-based knowledge, and the skills and tools necessary for conducting research, policy-making and field work. [+]

Programme overview

A person’s right to the highest attainable standard of health has no geographical or social bounds. However, poverty and lack of democratic governance impede many people’s access to this right. In order to abolish health inequalities, global partnerships and the effective spread of knowledge are essential. We must therefore educate future public health experts who have a broad, interdisciplinary perspective and the will to participate in this global effort.

The programme’s focus is therefore cross-disciplinary with a consistent global perspective. The programme provides students with evidence-based knowledgeand the skills and tools necessary for conducting research, policy-making and field work.Course leaders and guest lecturers have substantial experience in a range of disciplinary and geographical contexts and originate from countries such as Sweden, Ghana, Brazil, Canada, India and the USA. The diversity and experience of fellow students also contributes to the stimulating learning environment.... [-]
